Fill a basin with warm water and drop in one Oxi Booster Pod. Once it’s dissolved you can dunk the stained part of your garment in and let it sit until the stain loosens.
Select water temperature
Cold water is the best for most cotton items to prevent shrinkage, stretching, and color bleeding. However items worn or used in close contact to the body (underwear, socks, pajamas, bed linens, bath towels) should be washed in hot water to remove bacteria, body soil, and bodily fluids.
Choose wash cycle
Cotton can be washed on just about any cycle. Normal works well for most garments and linens. If the cotton garment is made of lace or embellished, it’s best to choose the gentle cycle, or to wash by hand.
If your cotton is excessively wrinkly, use a medium hot iron and always iron on the wrong side of the cotton fabric.
Though airtight plastic containers work short-term for cotton items (and carpet beetles can't get into plastic), these items do need to breathe longer term, so choose fabric storage containers and place them in cool, dry, dark spaces, or hang them in your closet. Avoid storing cotton items in attics and basements where temperatures and humidity fluctuate.
Fabric Softener Pods will make the cotton fibers feel softer and may reduce some wrinkling. Try to wash cotton less frequently, especially denim, to maintain its shape, color, and quality. To prevent clothes from fading, wash garments inside out, don't overstuff your washer, and try to use cold water if possible.
